Many of us have experienced under eye puffiness at some point in our lives, and whilst it is generally harmless, it can be extremely annoying.
Causes of under eye puffiness include lack of sleep, too much alcohol, fluid retention and diet. If you can pinpoint the cause of puffiness to one of these factors, you’ll be pleased to know that they are all easily treatable.
Whilst getting a few extra hours sleep, cutting down on the alcohol and taking a look at your diet will all eventually have an effect, it may take a little time for the appearance of puffiness to improve.
However, there are some great short term measures that you can take in the meantime. Applying a cold compress to the area- such as an eye pack- is a great way of reducing their appearance.
Drinking plenty of water will also help to quickly eliminate any excess water retention, which should have an impact on the appearance. These measures are particularly effective in the morning, which is when puffiness is generally more prominent.
For an external solution, Dermalogica Total Eye Care is the complete package for perking up the eye area. Not only does it help to reduce the appearance of puffiness, it also protects and repairs this highly delicate area- making it a fantastic addition to your daily skincare regime.
